I’ll give you mine right here. Perhaps if enough others join me, your effort will become a highly read story, who knows?

I started here in April of 2020 and made $17.43 that month. My best month was June at $29.62. The worst was May at $11.06.

I typically see under 150 views per day and 30 claps. I have 379 “followers”, though plainly few of them read what I write.

Highest grossing post was https://medium.com/creatures/my-father-taught-responsibility-with-a-horse-named-general-51beefea9e58 at $17.45.

Most views was https://medium.com/tonys-tech-corner/i-cant-draw-but-i-love-procreate-and-so-might-you-e237968cd56 at 3.1k (and just $7.51 in earnings). Many of my stories have only one view. Yes, one. Too bad, as some of those are actually pretty good.

I have had 31 curated stories out of 192, or about 16%. I’ve made 848 comments.

I do not submit to other publications. I did originally, but have rescinded most of those and now use only my own. I do not like being lost in a sea of other authors and I detest unfocused publications where the subject matter can be anything. I wish Medium didn’t allow that.

I do very little promotion. I should, but I guess I just do not care enough.

I follow 340 people and a few pubs, but not the unfocused ones.

I read a LOT of Medium every day. I clap enthusiastically or not at all.

Making money here is of interest, but secondary to my reading and writing. I get my kicks from genuine interactions, whether in my articles or in others.
